Prenegotiation public commitment in domestic and international bargaining
(American Political Science Review, 2005-08-01)
We use a formal bargaining model to examine why, in many domestic and international bargaining situations, one or both negotiators make public statements in front of their constituents committing themselves to obtaining ...
Managing Switching Costs in Multiperiod Procurements with Strategic Buyers
This article examines the use of switching costs by long-lived strategic buyers to manage dynamic competition between rival suppliers. The analysis reveals how buyers may employ switching costs to their advantage. We show ...
Toxicity of pendimethalin to nontarget soil organisms.

The question of 'race' in the pre-colonial southern Sahara
(Journal of North African Studies, 2005-09-01)
One of the principle issues that divide people in the southern margins of the Sahara Desert is the issue of 'race'. Each of the countries that share this region, from Mauritania to Sudan, has experienced civil violence with ...
Synthetic lethal analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans posterior embryonic patterning genes identifies conserved genetic interactions.
(Genome Biol, 2005)
Phenotypic robustness is evidenced when single-gene mutations do not result in an obvious phenotype. It has been suggested that such phenotypic stability results from 'buffering' activities of homologous genes as well as ...
Environmental fate and effects of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins from transgenic crops: a review.
(Journal of agricultural and food chemistry, 2005-06)
This paper reviews the scientific literature addressing the environmental fate and nontarget effects of the Cry protein toxins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), specifically resulting from their expression in transgenic ...
Riparian zones increase regional species richness by harboring different, not more, species
Riparian zones are habitats of critical conservation concern worldwide, as they are known to filter agricultural contaminants, buffer landscapes against erosion, and provide habitat for high numbers of species. Here we test ...
An immunoglobulin C kappa-reactive single chain antibody fusion protein induces tolerance through receptor editing in a normal polyclonal immune system.
(J Exp Med, 2005-03-07)
Understanding immune tolerance mechanisms is a major goal of immunology research, but mechanistic studies have generally required the use of mouse models carrying untargeted or targeted antigen receptor transgenes, which ...
